Births Jill and Todd Versteeg, FOOD DRIVE Concluded from p.1 up in Norwalk stay here and are taken to the local food pantry maintained at the New Life Lutheran Church. Last year Norwalk carriers collected and delivered just under 2,400 pounds of food and non-perishable items. At this time of year the food pantry is really low and in need of restocking. Any and all donations are welcomed. Items needed are varied. Any non-per- ishable food such as canned fruits, meats and vegetables, pasta, cereal, peanut butter, rice, boxed meals, etc., are welcome. Paper goods and personal hygiene items are also ac- cepted. If every family in the Norwalk delivery area were to donate just one 16 oz. can, that would be over 4,000 pounds of food. When you do your grocery shopping just pick up an extra can or two of veg- etables to donate. Let's see if we can exceed last year's donations! Please help those in need.
